My clients aren't models. They are real people. They are people that don't frequently step in front of the camera. I never expect my clients to know what to do or how to pose. Posing doesn't come naturally and I completely understand that.

That is why during your portrait session with me, I will teach you exactly how to pose. I know that beautiful and authentic moments will come when you're positioned in a place of comfort and confidence. 

I am so excited to direct and encourage you during your portrait session! I can guarantee you will leave feeling like a pro!!

Most of my brides opt for a package that includes the engagement session. If I am not shooting your wedding day, or you are hiring me to shoot something other than engagement photos, the first step is going to be reaching out. Shoot me an email letting me know what type of session you are wanting and I'll send you over my full pricing guide and steps to book.
